Ad Astra

March 13th, 2014 by Darin

10003921_423120527833823_1132495396_n Now that the proper authorities have all been informed, I’m very happy to announce that I’ve accepted a full-time position as an editor at Resurrection House. I’ll be helping out with the usual: acquisitions, editing, production, marketing–you name it. Having done varieties of these jobs for different independent presses and journals over the years, I’m happy to finally bundle them all under one job description. Indeed–my dream job description.

Mark, the publisher, and I are long-time friends, and we’ve collaborated on a number of zany projects down in the creative trenches. I’ve been so thrilled by my own reception as a novelist at Resurrection House, that when the opportunity arose to revisit that experience upon other writers, I just couldn’t say no.

I’ve enjoyed my time in the video game world at id Software, and I’ll certainly miss my friends there. I’m know, however, that they’ll continue the good fight without me. I can’t wait for the rest of you to see what’s forthcoming from the studio.

Now, ad astra!

Introducing Chimpanzee and Totem

October 25th, 2013 by Darin

It’s my great pleasure to announce that my next two novels have been acquired by Mark Teppo at Resurrection House. Chimpanzee and Totem are the second and third books in the thematic cluster that began with Noise, and they will be released in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

I’m very excited to work with Mark to bring these two books fully to life. I’ve worked on several different projects with him over the years, often trading editorial roles, and he knows the dark turns and bright lights and imaginary friends of my fiction sometimes even better than I do. The excitement he’s bringing to these books is outmatched only by own, and then only barely. I can’t wait for the journey.

Please, help yourself to descriptions of Chimpanzee and Totem

(Special thanks to my agent Kris O’Higgins at Scribe Agency.)

World’s Tallest Slum

A failed financial tower-cum-collective residence. This is like a lance between my collapse-loving eyes.

We Denton Do It is a hip blog-zine local to my stomping grounds. Recently, they interviewed me about Noise and its relationship to Denton. Please help yourself to a look.

Free Fiction: Sweet Water

July 11th, 2013 by Darin

Here’s a gem that I’ve been holding onto for a long time. If you enjoyed Noise, you might enjoy this magical realist look at a resource-based religion engineering a dark, exploitative, and uncomfortably familiar society…

Music Recommendations: 7/8/13

July 8th, 2013 by Darin

I’ve had the opportunity to hear Possessed by Paul James play several times, twice with his stellar touring partner Delaney Davidson, but it’s never occurred to me to encourage others to seek these guys out. They put on another great show this holiday weekend at Dan’s Silverleaf—this time, I remembered to tell you about them.
